And, did we mention that Big Pauper sent us these answers to our questions in this next installment of the q and also a series?
q: What is the last song you (really) heard?
q: What is your favorite beverage?
a: Ouzo on the rocks.
q: What is your favorite band to see live?
q: What is your favorite venue in NYC (if applicable)?
a: Coney Island boardwalk at 4am.
q: What piece(s) of culture are you really really excited about right now?
a: I have developed a mild fascination with Matthew Lesko and his online presence. I can’t get enough of his infomercials, especially Tax Rap & that disturbing Gotta Get Your Money one where he just randomly starts beating a man. Something got tragically lost in execution on that one. That man is one of the most significant visual/performance artists of our time whether or not he realizes it. I think he does.

q: Anything we should know about your latest project (whatever that might be)?
a: Man, where to start. I recently created a collection of VSTs based on the world-renowned circuit bent instruments of my Folktek cohorts. I’m getting ready to tour Europe with a live a/v performance I cooked up. I’m filming a sixty minute collection of short films at my place of employment (unbeknownst to my employer). I also recently purchased a vinyl lathe I plan on restoring. New albums, new collaborations, made a banana bread a minute ago I want to go eat. Nice chatting with you folks, thanks for your support.
